321: Karena and Mia Steir – The Surprise Gifts of a Dream Journey

Today, we’re talking with Karena and Mia Steir.  These are two amazing humans… with incredible stories.  But we’re going to focus on ONE particular story from something that started at a BIG Dream Gathering a few years ago. 

I mentioned this story in episode 311 and you guys let me know you LOVED it.  It was the story of Mia… who came to the BIG Dream Gathering and decided that one of her big dreams was to write a book.  Well…

she was really inspired by a number of people in the room… (and her mom Karena).  So… with the support of her parents… Mia got ‘er done and wrote that book (“Victoria… the Drama Investigator) in record time!!! 

Not only that but she was able to get that book into schools across the country!  So, we’re going to dig into their inspiring story… and more importantly, talk about the power of pursuing dreams at ANY age and the surprise gifts that can come along the way.  Let’s get to this!
